inventory is bound to be a lot smaller than at the Apple Store. The official word from a Walmart spokesman is that the stores will have limited quantities of the device. If you get cut off at Walmart, by the time you head over to any of Apple's retail locations, you are bound to end up in the back of a very long line. You will need to make a tough decision pretty soon. It will require some guesses on your part, such as how many people you think will be heading to your local 24 hour Walmart, the number of iPads that the store might have on stock and which model they are carrying.
Let us know how it goes for you, and if you do snag an iPad just after midnight, drop us a comment in the box below.
